3 Dear Prospective Graduate Student, Aristotle famously asserted that politics is the master art. As such, it encompasses many perspectives and impacts our lives in many tangible ways. Political science today is a mature discipline that offers many opportunities to explore our world and participate in its unfolding story. Dr. Joseph Losco Department Chair & Professor For those of you wishing to participate actively in the research and practice of politics, the master s degree from the political science department at Ball State University can help jumpstart your career. The degree is an appropriate stepping stone to careers in education, law, politics, and public service. Our Master s program has strengths in comparative and international politics, American institutions, media and politics, and law. We strongly emphasize internship programs. Each year many of our students serve as interns with the Indiana General Assembly, various governmental offices, and law firms. Our small classes allow close faculty-student interaction and collaboration, often resulting in joint publication. Our MA graduates have gone on to receive their Ph.D. s from institutions around the country and are currently teaching at Universities like Carnegie Mellon, University of Pittsburgh, and the University of Washington. They have also moved on to receive law degrees from Harvard, Vanderbilt, and UCLA. We also house the Bowen Center for Public Affairs, offering graduate students the opportunity to work on issues related to civic engagement, voting systems security, disability policy, and public policy polling. Our annual Hoosier Survey is recognized as the state s pre-eminent public policy survey and is eagerly awaited each December by lawmakers throughout the state. We encourage you to contact us so we can help you explore your political interests and plan your career. Sincerely, Joseph Losco Professor and Chair (765)

12 Bowen Center for Public Affairs In 2007, the Bowen Center for Public Affairs was founded to honor the leadership and personal integrity of Dr. Otis R. Bowen who served as the 44 th Governor of Indiana and as Secretary of Health and Human Services under President Ronald Reagan. The Bowen Center for Public Affairs is a freestanding center at Ball State University in the College of Sciences and Humanities and is allied with the Department of Political Science. The mission of the Bowen Center for Public Affairs is to promote civic engagement, public service, and effective public policy by providing: Civic education to help citizens effectively participate in public affairs; Professional development opportunities for state and local public officials and nonprofit administrators to help them provide efficient and effective services in an ever more challenging environment; and University-based, non-partisan applied research that identifies and clarifies current public policy needs and responds to the needs and requests of local, state and national leaders.

13 Advancing the ideals of civic literacy, community involvement and public service embodied by Dr. Bowen s career, the Bowen Center for Public Affairs provides focused training, networking, and research opportunities through its three components: The Institute on Political Participation, The Institute for Public Service, and the Institute for Policy Research. Bowen Institute on Political Participation Raymond Scheele Co-Director, Bowen Center & Professor The Bowen Institute on Political Participation provides citizens and students with the skills and knowledge to more effectively participate in civic affairs. Citizens and Indiana college students who have expressed an interest in participating in government and politics but have not done so at a high level are nominated for participation in the Institute. These individuals are brought together in a weekend-long workshop to heighten their interests in civic engagement and enhance their participatory skills. The program provides students with valueable networking opportunities and both undergraduate and graduate students earn credit toward their degrees through attendance and participation. Bowen Institute for Public Service Sally Jo Vasicko Co-Director, Bowen Center & Professor The Institute for Public Service provides opportunities for the professionalization of Indiana state, county, and local officeholders and administrators through targeted training and certification programs. The programs feature best practice solutions to ensure the efficient and effective delivery of government services. Its signature programs include the Certified Public Manager (CPM) Program and Community Conversations series. The CPM Program is the Bowen Center s nationally accredited and highly acclaimed professional development program designed specifically for managers and supervisors employed in public service. The CPM Program assists public managers to provide effective and efficient public resources by applying established public management theories. The Community Conversations series, conducted in collaboration with Indiana Humanities, convenes regional conversations among community leaders and citizens from public, private and non-profit sectors to address major challenges facing their communities. Bowen Institute for Policy Research Charles Taylor CPM Coordinator & Asst. Professor The Institute for Policy Research conducts university-based, non-partisan research. Partnering with other organizations to meet specific research needs, the institute tackles projects that range from voting habits to discovering employment obstacles facing persons with disabilities. The institute also conducts the Hoosier Survey, an annual public policy opinion survey that collects data concerning public opinion on key public policy issues. 13

14 Graduate Alumni Alumni Profile Riley Steinmetz Class of 2011 Master of Arts in Political Science After my first year in the MA program at Ball State, I knew that research was not the area I wanted to end up in, so I started applying for summer internships to get some professional experience. With the depressed economy, I knew it was a tough market for internships, so I applied just about everywhere I could think of. One of those places was with the U.S. Olympic Committee. A few months later, I packed my bags for Colorado Springs to work as a Digital Media Intern at the USOC. Despite the fact that it outwardly appeared unrelated to political science, I actually used my graduate education extensively. With the skills I learned from Dr. Hall s POLS 626 course, I was able to put together weekly statistical analyses on website activity--something they d never had an intern do before. Writing content for the website was another part of my job--and after writing a 30-page policy paper on same-sex marriage for Dr. Waite s POLS 610 class, throwing together a quick story on a controversial sponsorship deal came with ease. When international delegations came to the Olympic Training Center, I was able to quickly establish a rapport with them because of the foundation I had from my international relations courses. In short, an internship that had originally seemed like more of a break from the classroom ended up being a practical application of virtually everything I d learned in those very classrooms! I m now working with the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association, the national governing body for Olympic skiing and snowboarding in the United States. The same writing and statistics skills I learned at Ball State are still serving me well and were a huge factor in why I was hired over other candidates. I also have taken and passed the Foreign Service Officer Test, with the hopes of eventually serving as a diplomat for the United States abroad. Every employer I ve had since leaving Muncie has spoken to me at length about how my graduate degree has set me apart from the rest of the applicant field. When there s hundreds of applications for one position, those letters MA say a lot more than that--they indicate an applicant who knows how to write, present and run some stats. 14
